Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Feb. 16, 2016 Mobile: FREE "LEARN LATIN" Workshop


I have pasted below an announcement about an upcoming free workshop that may interest educators and homeschooling parents. The workshop aims to support the study of Latin, word study, and ancient Roman civilization on the elementary and middle school levels by giving elementary and middle school teachers and homeschooling parents the tools they need to begin to incorporate these topics into their classrooms. Any support that you could provide in getting the word out about this workshop would be most appreciated!

The workshop is presented by Ascanius: The Youth Classics Institute, a 15 year old nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the knowledge of and inspiring lifelong learning about Latin, Greek, and the ancient Greco-Roman world, especially at the elementary and middle school levels.

Thank you!

Let's Learn Latin will introduce elementary and middle school teachers and homeschooling parents to the world of Latin and the ancient Romans through a series of engaging, standards-connected lessons. Participants get to play the role of students, learning the material through the same activities and lessons that they will be able to use in their own classrooms. Participants will enjoy learning the basics of Latin, by working through 50% or more of a colorful, interesting, kid-friendly text called Minimus, richly supplemented by effective and innovative activities to practice the material. Other topics include Latin vocabulary, word roots, and Roman culture and mythology – all of which integrate seamlessly with Minimus. No previous experience with Latin is needed!

Participants will receive myriad classroom-ready materials on all topics studied. All participants will receive documentation of their 6.0 contact hours.

Register: by mail or online. Deadline: 2/1/16. Limited to 15-20 participants. Cost: FREE! Registration, workshop materials and resources, and light breakfast with coffee are provided. Participants should bring their own lunch (there is not enough time to leave the hotel).
